it's never been tried in humans. in monkeys it was given when they were infected but they had no symptoms. they weren't sick. here they were very sick and this kind of drug doesn't work that way. >> it does appear, though, that both these patients are out of woods? >> when you're hearing they're up and walking about, the normal course for ebola if you're not going to make it, it's a pretty downward spiral. the fact she's asking for her favorite liberian dish is good news. >> let's go to dan harris with the news. >> good morning, good morning, everybody. we'll start with breaking news. american soldiers have come under attack. the afghan equivalent of west point. an afghan soldier turned his weapon against the americans and other afghans and reports of several serious injuries. details still coming in right now and we'll bring you the latest as we get it. also breaking, an earthquake jolting south africa shaking building, more than 100 miles away from johannesburg. this quake was first reported as a magnitude 6.0 but downgraded

advice. >> more you than them. >> me personally, no, i don't know what you're talking about. >> i'm surprised a seal -- >> and stay there that long. >> wow. >> very cute pictures. thank you. the world famous ohio state university band. the director breaking his silence defending himself against charges of a sexualized culture among members that led to his ultimate firing. abc's alex perez is in columbus with the story. good morning, alex. >> reporter: good morning, amy. many of those performances made famous here at ohio stadium. all this started after a parent filed a complaint triggering a two-month-long investigation and for the first time we're hearing from the former band director who insists he should have never lost his job. ♪ he's the mastermind behind some of the most intricate jaw-dropping college marching band performances in the country. but this morning, former ohio state university band director, john waters, is speaking out
about his more recent and troubling claim to fame, a scathing report that cost him his job. >> the fact that this report makes that the culture is some kind of "animal house" fraternity is just not accurate. >> reporter: a 92-page report alleges he knew about and failed to stop a sexualized culture of prank, tricks and rituals among band students but waters argues more than the nine current and former band members cited in the report should have been interviewed. >> the sample size was tremendously small for such an important issue as band culture. >> reporter: according to the report students regularly hazed rookies, performed sexually explicit stunts and marched into the stadium in their underwear late at night in a tradition called midnight ramp. in a video statement the university's president arguing firing waters was the only solution. >> even one instance of harassment or hazing or assault is one too many. >> reporter: do you feel you
were a scapegoat? >> i think that i was a victim of a rush to judgment and a very inaccurate report. >> reporter: waters argues the problems started long before he arrived. >> when you are dealing with a culture that is entrenched, again, since the 1930s, this does not change overnight. >> reporter: he says university officials never of course raed him to investigate misconduct and insist he began working on culture reform before the investigation. >> no one came to me and said that the culture of the band is an issue and needs to change. i realized that myself. >> reporter: in a statement, ohio state tells abc news "the former director was aware or reasonably should have known about this culture but failed to eliminate it, prevent its recurrence and address its effects" and the university has named an interim director and says they are beginning the process of launching a national search to find a new permanent
director. amy, george. >> thanks. we were saying everyone has cameras these days. lara, you have a great story. >> exactly. from seals to this, an incredible rescue caught on a gopro camera in the beautiful waters off hawaii. four teens and four adults clinging to safety after their boat sank overcome by huge waves but thankfully some quick thinking and teamwork saved their lives. >> we're getting rescued! >> we're going to live. >> reporter: take a look at this dramatic firsthand video of a harrowing rescue at sea. you can see the eight stranded boaters, some of their heads just barely bobbing above water. as the u.s. coast guard swoops in to save them from hawaii's channel sunday, 15-year-old mark reeves captures the whole ordeal on his gopro. the four teens and four adults have been on an overnight trip aboard this 21-foot boat when they say it started taking on water 12 miles offshore and the lifeguard was one of the
passenger. >> it got scary rough where waves were breaking over the bough and too much water was in the boat. >> reporter: they were able to grab life jackets and kayaks before the boat sank and another potentially life-saving move. >> got out the cell phones and started making phone calls. >> reporter: with that irkayaks tied together so they wouldn't lose each other they battled waves and the beating sun for two hours until -- >> we're going to live. >> whoo! >> reporter: their salvation in the sky. one coastguard member diving in securing each person one by one as they're lifted to the chopper above and back on dry land all eight are doing just fine this morning. >> it could have been bad. it really could have. you have to have a lot of respect for that ocean. >> they were lucky and the coast guard says it was actually a special tracking device on board that automatically went off that when the boat capsized that was the real hero of the day. saved them. >> technology all around. doing its job.
okay, lara, thanks very much. ginger, we have a lot of rain coming. >> it's that time of year but still to see it, the flash flood watches, come with me, are still in place for four state, idaho, wyoming, utah and nevada. they blow up, 2 inches per hour and don't drive into it. the moisture is going to be fueling here by a low pressure system, a couple of other variables but see where some of the 1 to 2-inch rates will be falling. the stationary front, this is going to be a story going into the next 24 to 48 hours. right there through iowa into parts of illinois and india the next couple of days, rainy and now leave you with a look across the nation.

imagine, loving your numbers. introducing once-daily invokana®. it's the first of a new kind of prescription medicine that's used along with diet and exercise to lower blood sugar in adults with type 2 diabetes. invokana® is a once-daily pill that works around the clock to help lower a1c. here's how: the kidneys allow sugar to be absorbed back into the body. invokana® reduces the amount of sugar allowed back in, and sends some sugar out through the process of urination. and while it's not for weight loss, it may help you lose some weight. invokana® can cause important side effects, including dehydration, which may cause some people to have loss of body water and salt. this may also cause you to feel dizzy, faint, lightheaded, or weak especially when you stand up. other side effects may include kidney problems, genital yeast infections, urinary tract infections, changes in urination, high potassium in the blood, or increases in cholesterol.
do not take invokana® if you have severe kidney problems or are on dialysis or if allergic to invokana® or its ingredients. symptoms of allergic reaction may include rash, swelling, difficulty breathing or swallowing. if you experience any of these symptoms, stop taking invokana® and call your doctor right away or go to the nearest hospital. tell your doctor about any medical conditions, medications you are taking, and if you have kidney or liver problems. using invokana® with a sulfonylurea or insulin may increase risk of low blood sugar. it's time. lower your blood sugar with invokana®. imagine loving your numbers. ask your doctor about invokana®. with a splash of style. let's do modest budget major make over then enjoy the view. let's do this. more saving. more doing.

can't wait for today. the latest on the trial of a michigan man charged with murder for shooting an unarmed teen on his porch. theodore wafer will be back on the stand this morning after an emotional first day of testimony. abc's ryan smith is tracking the case. good morning, ryan. >> reporter: good morning, george. with the defense's case nearly complete they offered up their final and most important witness yet, wafer himself and he told the jury what he heard and saw the night of the shooting and how he felt about killing the teenager. >> i wasn't going to cower in my house. i didn't want to be a victim. >> reporter: theodore wafer, the man accused of gunning down an unarmed 19-year-old, renisha mcbride, taking the stand in his own defense monday. >> why did you pull the trigger? >> to defend myself. >> reporter: wiping away tears. >> this poor girl, she had her whole life in front of her. i took that from her. >> reporter: prosecutors charged wafer with second degree murder claiming he shot and killed miss mcbride after she showed up at
his home following a nearby car crash. the defense claiming wafer fired his 12 gauge shotgun in self-defense. when mcbride banged on his door intoxicated in the mid of the night. wafer testifying that crime is a problem in his neighborhood. >> a neighbor across the street had to actually hold off three guys with his handgun. >> reporter: leading him to buy a shotgun. >> i just heard it was a good home defense weapon. >> reporter: the 55-year-old claims the fast-moving situation forced had him to act quickly. >> how fast is this happening to you? >> seconds. >> why didn't you call 911 before shooting a weapon? >> i couldn't find my cell phone. >> reporter: but prosecutors doubting his motives and questioning those tears on the witness stand. >> do you remember ever crying within 2 1/2 to 3 hours after you shot renisha mcbride?
>> no, i don't think so. >> you didn't cry, right? >> i don't think i did. >> there's no jury there at the time you were talking to lieutenant serwatowski, right? >> argument, your honor. >> reporter: he thought multiple people were outside his house and he thought they wanted to hurt him and despite loading the shotgun a month before he didn't remember it was loaded until after the shooting. he'll continue to face cross-examination today and if convicted of second degree murder he faces life in prison, george. >> o. ryan, thanks very much. dan abrams with us right now and, dan, you saw the prosecutors questioning his demeanor on the stand. how important is that. >> typically i say demeanor doesn't tend to mean that much. in this particular case with the defendant on the stand it means a lot. this case comes down to his testimony. this case comes down to can they believe him? do they believe his account and can they most importantly put themselves in his position and understand why he says it was
reasonable to do what he did and so it goes to credibility, right? >> and then picking up from that i guess the most important thing for him has to be to make sure he's got a rock solid story. >> and that it doesn't vary too much from what he told police, right? he gave an entire statement to the police of what happened. it's all on tape. prosecutors have just played it in court. the key for him has been, don't vary too much from that account because that goes to credibility and so far he hasn't too much. but prosecutors are going to pick away at certain discrepancies and they're going to say, this shows you that he is telling a different story now than he did before. >> and one of the discrepancies between the prosecution and the defense is the distance he was from the vic. >> right. the defense is trying to say he was very, very close when the shot occurred. in essence trying to suggest that maybe she was trying to break into the house. prosecutors are saying, no, no, no. there were a number of feet here between this and this was
effectively an execution. meaning he had time to prepare, cocks the gun, points the gun, he's feet away, shoots the gun. defense wants to say this is feckly combat as it was happening and so he didn't have the time to think about that. >> okay, dan abrams, thanks very much. >> all right. all right, george, thank you. now to the desperate search for a missing 6-year-old in washington state. the little girl was last seen saturday night when she went to bed. but her parents did not report her missing until late sunday. they have both taken lie detector tests and we want to thank our station komo tv and abc's gio benitez has more. >> reporter: an urgent search for denise wright last seen by her parents as she went to bed in their home. >> i have hope she just wandered somewhere. >> reporter: the fbi and more than 80 police officers from around the area are searching every single car that goes this and out of that suburban neighborhood and with canine teams. parents called 911 to report her
missing on sunday night. 24 hours after last seeing her. raising some suspicion. >> i don't want to speculate on that. that's something the detectives will certainly address but right now our focus is on finding this child with regard to issues concerning why the delay, what was explained to us, this was kind of normal behavior for this child. >> reporter: the missing girl's father spoke exclusively to our station komo. >> i hope she's spending the night somewhere. she's really independent, tenacious. has her name written all over the house. >> reporter: overnight they turned their search to the wright home. both have taken lie detector tests but investigators won't release the results. child protective services has removed the 8-year-old and 12-year-old siblings while that search continues. the parents told authorities she often plays outside but checks in regularly. the neighbor's daughter plays with her. >> i have hope she just wandered somewhere. she's just really sweet, trusting, she would walk up to a stranger and talk to them. >> i could hear them yelling in
the street calling her name. i didn't want to find something in the ditch. it makes you think in the area that you felt safe around here who do you live next to. >> this is where you come in to help search for the girl. she's 3 feet tall and about 45 pounds, again, she's just 6 years old. officially this is considered a missing persons case with suspicious circumstances and sure hope she'll be okay entering the first grade just next month. >> we certainly hope they get answers soonment we want to turn to ginger zee with more on the weather and there's a lot to talk about, ginger. >> there is and i've got a really amazing picture that goes along with this story. in the last 0 minutes in colorado there have been 300 lightning strikes and as beautiful as they can be we know they're very dangerous and we know that red flag warnings all out here from parts of california through oregon and washington state. a lot of them, you read the text it says lightning is one of the biggest issues along with those
erratic winds gusting to some 30 miles per hour because the lightning hits the dry brush and wildfire just gets going. in the northeast we had a beautiful day for so many folks just yesterday. now we'll see the clouds on the increase and overnight they try to make their way through but >> thanks a lot, ginger, david murphy on the terrace. we have sun up over the horizon. it's a little bit on the muggy side with temperature in the 60's and pushing into the 70's now. 89 is the high later. there's a slight chance of a sp >> all that weather brought to you by walmart. a lot of headlines this morning. >> there sure are. >> busy. >> thanks. coming up important new research reveries what hospital you birth in could really matter. >> the new fear about drones. paparazzi now using them to stalk celebrities and why the stars say this is putting everyone in danger. i know the tastiest fruit is the freshest fruit. i know that what goes into this soil
